Artwork for the unissued 50 centésimos coin.


Originally it was intended that this coin series would include a 50 centésimos coin. However, as a result of inflation, on 1st July 2010 all existing (old series) 50 centésimos coins were withdrawn from circulation, and that denomination was demonetised. The design depicting the Southern Lapwing bird (Vanellus chilensis), seen above,  therefore never reached production.
